OAU lecturer Dr Igbokwe found dead in his office


Lifeless body of a lecturer, Dr Nicholas Igbokwe, was on Saturday morning found in his office at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife.



Until his death, Igbokwe was a lecturer in the Physical and Health Education Department of the university.

Although there is no official statement yet as to how the incident happened, a source in the department, said the late academic might have died on Friday without anyone knowing about it.

The source said, “His lifeless body was already cold when it was discovered around 12 midnight on Saturday.



“That suggests he died on Friday without anyone knowing about it. I passed by his office around 7.30pm on Friday and his car was not parked at the usual spot. So, no one knew he was around.

“Some members of staff later observed light was on in his office and entered there. He was already cold by then.”



The lecturer was confirmed dead at the university’s health centre.

The Public Relations Officer of the university, Abiodun Olanrewaju, told Sunday PUNCH that the late Igbokwe would be missed for his contributions to the university.

He said, “I have not been fully briefed regarding the circumstances surrounding his death. From the information available to me, he was rushed to the OAU Health Centre, but he died before getting to the facility.” Punch
